Thanks for your great work, lia.

China Cat was the song where I first felt the deep psychedelia of the Grateful Dead. I had heard Uncle John's Band, Shakedown Street, and Terrapin Station before then and thought of them as a Classic Rock band with folky, bluesy undertones... didn't really know what to think of Terrapin at first except that it was awesome.

I could have sworn there was a China > Foolish Heart > Rider sometime in the 80's... I don't really like Foolish Heart too much but the main instrumental hook is beautiful.
